- ... We present a radiocarbon date (12,742–12,562 cal BP) for an Eremotherium laurillardi tooth found in Sergipe state, northeastern Brazil, which shows anthropogenic marks. Our result provides additional information and reinforces the hypothesis that humans was present in South America earlier than accepted currently, and interacted with megafauna during the late Pleistocene in this region. ...

- ... During the Pleistocene a fauna composed of large (biomass>44kg) and giant mammals (biomass>1000kg) that are usually associated with open environments lived in the Brazilian Intertropical Region. We present here new information concerning the paleoecology and chronology of some species of this megafauna. Carbon isotope analyses were performed for a better understanding of the paleoecology of the sp ...
